Maila Anchal

by Phanishwar Nath Renu
 

I.                    Editor’s Note from Chloe Smith:

Maila Anchal is a great novel for an advanced Hindi student looking to strengthen his or her language skills.The characters within the story speak with a wide range of voices, many of which exhibit very different vocabularies and styles of speaking. In order to make these excerpts from the novel as accessible as possible, I have, with her kind permission, paired them with selections from Indira Junghare’s 1991 translation, and included her introduction as an overview of the novel. I have also added a vocabulary list for each chapter.These glossaries are expanded versions of a class syllabus put together by Dr. Karine Schomer in 1980. In updating them I drew largely on The Oxford Hindi-English Dictioary, on Junghare’s translation, and on the assistance of Rakesh Ranjan and Dalpat Rajpurohit of Columbia University, for whose help I am most grateful.
